Venetian Prints in the Time of Tintoretto
March 24 – June 9, 2019
West Building, Ground Floor

Agostino Carracci, Mercury and the Three Graces, 1589, engraving on laid paper, sheet: 20.2 x 25.7 cm (7 15/16 x 10 1/8 in.), National Gallery of Art, Washington, Ailsa Mellon Bruce Fund

This exhibition is no longer on view at the National Gallery.

Completing the panorama of Venetian art in the time of Tintoretto is an exhibition that will present some 40 prints from the second half of the 16th century, ranging from the exquisite etchings of Parmigianino and his immediate followers in the Veneto, to the spectacular woodcuts of Giuseppe Scolari, most from the Gallery’s own collection. They will reveal a critical source for Tintoretto’s artistic formation, parallel developments toward a distinctively Venetian mannerism, and striking graphic responses to the dynamism and expressiveness of Tintoretto’s style.

The exhibition curator is Jonathan Bober, Andrew W. Mellon Senior Curator of Prints and Drawings, National Gallery of Art.

Organization: Organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington

Passes: Admission is always free and passes are not required
